Aunt.t has today released her first single, ‘Weekends Are Made For Two’, which will form as an introductory piece for her six song EP set for unshackling in July. Boasting a unique voice, Aunt.t, whose real name is Fausat Abioye, has set some time aside to add a creative second string to her bow, becoming a proud and independent older female artist.
Shaped by her life experiences and a rich tapestry of feelings, Aunt.t has chosen to take her valuable listening skills, having become influenced by her auntie’s piano, along with the streamlined guitar playing of Neil Young and Jimi Hendrix, to pursue her own creative goals.
The passionate singer/songwriter has spent most of the lockdown period working in the emergency services, yet still finds the time to produce and record her own music. She alone recorded, performed and produced all the tracks in her EP in her bedroom and hallway, including ‘Weekends Are Made For Two’, which explores the persistent and relevant problem of loneliness in lockdown and beyond.
The song is intimately ear-warming and explicitly meaningful, refusing to let your mind rest over the problems that many face daily. Simple but effective, Aunt.t gets the basics right, something that many artists struggle to achieve.
Aunt.t is Abioye’s soul mission, and she believes that her music and performances should be eye-catching, suggesting that ‘The more eye-catching this is, the better’. She plans not only to write and sing about her own mysterious truths but to share her voice as an older artist with the hope that it is relevant. Which, of course, is very relevant.
'Weekends Are Made For Two' is out now and available on all major streaming platforms.
